AC/DC Release Bon Scott’s Final 1979 Concert on DVD and Blu-Ray
It’s been 31 years since Bon Scott tragically passed away, but the late AC/DC vocalist’s influence still holds strong today. Whether it’s the sleaze ‘n’ roll of Buckcherry or the high energy boogie of Airbourne, Scott’s fingerprints are all over the current rock scene.
No one could have imagined that a 1979 Paris concert would be the very last filmed live performance of the hard rock icon. Originally released theatrically in September 1980, ‘AC/DC: Let There Be Rock’ went on to become one of the most celebrated concert films in history. To commemorate its 30th anniversary, the folks at Warner Home Video released the film for the first time ever on Blu-ray and DVD . Noisecreep got our grubby little hands on a clip in which Bon Scott talks about how he joined AC/DC.
